"The Bohol Forest is a man-made mahogany forest stretching in a two-kilometer stretch of densely planted Mahogany trees located in the border of Loboc and Bilar towns. Before and after this man-made forest are the naturally grown forests of Loboc and Bilar which are thick with a kaleidoscope of green foliage, different species of trees and giant ferns lining the road...This rainforest is about 20 kilometers from Tagbilaran City..."

Our third spot in our Bohol countryside tour is the Man-made Forest. When we went to the Chocolate Hills, we passed by the Mahogany trees along the highway. Kuya tatsky told us that it's the man-made forest. All the while I thought that the man-made forest is really a forest where you can go trek and stuff. But it's not.
So after Butterfly Center experience, around 11:45 a.m., we purposely went to the man-made forest. It's a long stretch of Mahogany trees and a defense for flood and erosion as the roots of these trees hold the soil.
It took us a while because of the vehicles. It's a thrilling and exciting experience as your heart pounds so hard while you're posing. But we did it!and we have several photos and jump shots.
